The property is situated back from the lane in an elevated position. The winding drive snakes past the horse chestnuts, vast expanse of lake, lawned gardens and arrives at a large courtyard fronting the château. The grounds are entirely closed & gated.
A separate, private, walled garden of approximately 2 000 m² houses the pool & vegetable gardens.

HISTORY

Previous occupants have included numerous generations of French nobility though the château fell victim to the riots of the French revolution and was burnt to the ground. Its external walls, winding granite staircase & various flagstones remain but the rest of the internals were rebuilt at the beginning of the 19th century. Later occupants included the German army with the then Kommandant at the helm who made further alterations. It was also a retirement home led by Franciscan monks at one stage.

WHY BUY THIS PROPERTY?

I could wax lyrical but no amount of rhetoric could do justice to this highly individual, prestigious property in such a unique setting. Only a viewing will reveal its true allure, including that of its exclusive location.
